Antique Sheffield Plate Figural Epergne by T. & J. Creswick, Sheffield, c. 1820


This spectacular centerpiece epergne exhibits exceptional design, casting and silversmithing by the famous firm of Thomas and James Creswick from Sheffield, England. Bold leaves of classical inspiration envelop the tree-form column with cascading leaves at the top.

A basket screws into the top of the column. It consists of six leaves with a thick wire rim to hold the large bowl. Four twisting arms, which are removable, are reeded and covered partly in dramatic foliage. The smaller cups mimic the central holder with four smaller leaves and a wire ring to hold the bowls.

This stunning epergne is marked with Creswick's crossed arrows trademark underneath. The epergne measures 16 inches high to the top of the glass bowl by 21 inches across the arms.

Condition: The bowls to the epergne are not original and are in excellent condition. The epergne has a resilvered surface in beautiful condition.
